"McAfee File and Removable Media Protection" doesn't work

Hi.

I want to use FRP to encrympt documents in share folder.

So I checked in "McAfee File and Removable Media Protection 5.0" by Software Manager and deploy FRP to managed systems.

I created a policy under "Location based Protection" and specfied the folder I want to encrympt.

However, the folder was not encrympted. I don't know what is the reason.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks in advance!

Can you confirm FRP was actually deployed to some clients? Not the server itself (that won't achieve what you intend), FRP needs to be installed on all the machines which will access that share.

Thank you for your reply!

I already installed FRP on all machines which will access the share.

But maybe FRP was not installed properly.

After I installed FRP on my PC, my PC grows slower and slower.

Also It appears following error in windows log.

Do you know the reson?

Re: "McAfee File and Removable Media Protection" doesn't work

Several days ago I refer following article and install hotfix 2775511 in my PC.

I don't know whether it caused application error in Windows log.

McAfee KnowledgeBase - Performance issues when copying files across the network to a NetApp Storage ...

Finally I removed FRP from my PC, then PC returned to normal.

Do you know the reson?

Hi,

some of the mcafee products uses more utilization of i/o, so that's way your system may be slow down.

cheers

Likely it was busy encrypting the network share you told it to encrypt - was there a lot of data in the share?
